I hope I'm posting in the right place. After a high risk hpv result from my smear test, I had a colposcopy and results from the biopsy confirmed cin3 cells. I am due to have these all removed on the 26th and says I will then get my results within 6 weeks. I am confused as I assumed that after having the pre cancerous cells removed, I would be all clear and just need follow up smears. I've looked into CIN3 on the NHS site and it says this
CIN 3 or CGIN
CIN 3 or CGIN cells indicate that all of the cells in the affected area of your cervix are abnormal. If this is the case, these cells will need to be removed.
In rare cases, a biopsy will show that some of the abnormal cells in your cervix have become cancerous. If this is the case, you will need to have further tests and your specialist will arrange any necessary treatment as soon as possible.
So, does this mean that after having these removed, and a biopsy done again, I could potentially discover that some are already cancerous. I do experience symptoms such as: bleeding after sex, bloating, pain during sex, heavy discharge daily. I am now really worried but trying to put on a brave face for everyone as I have a 5 month old son :(
